New Teacher Evaluation system update:

Some members have been interested in what’s going on with the teacher evaluation advisory committee.  There is an update on the results so far in the August 2010 edition of teach:

Through TEA’s influence:
• A proposal to use school-wide TVAAS data for 35 per-
cent of a teacher’s evaluation for teachers without TVAAS
scores has been scrapped in favor of a plan to convene
groups of such teachers by subject area/specialty in the
fall to determine and/or develop what would be acceptable
“comparable” measures of growth for those teachers.
• A hastily drafted policy for first reading by the State
Board of Education in July has been withdrawn and the
timeline has been revised to provide for first reading of a
revised policy in late October.
• While field testing of some evaluation rubrics and pro-
cesses will be conducted in some districts this fall on a trial
basis, this field testing is intended to inform TEAC and the
state board on what works and what does not and will not
influence a teacher’s official evaluation, tenure or employ-
ment status.

If you want to dig deeper, you can see the committee members here, and search the public meeting notices on the state website to find recent meeting agendas and minutes.
